are you looking for an alternative treatment to chemo/radiation or adjunct treatment. I put in the post on anti cancer diet seeing a Naturopath Oncologist.  They do a lot of blood tests to work with your immune system and make that as strong as possible.  Tests like T-cell/killer cell, IL-6,  Tests our regular dr wouldn't do,  but my oncologist believes in just not normal protocol for them.    It is hard to follow another's plan as it is usually particiular that individual's needs.  I have been seeing my naturopath since diagnosis and during treatment.  She was able to give me supplements that my team agreed that helped with the treatment

 

there is a big Naturopath oncologist in Colorado that other ladies have seen.  Let me know if you want me to research the name.   I found mine by googling Naturopath ONcologists

thank you for the info. We are based in Sydney so will look for what is available locally. I have read a few people managed to beat cancer completely by changing their diet and without any medical help. There is a book called "from cancer to wellness". I am going to start reading it. Apparently it's written by a lady who cured her stage 4 cancer with just diet changes.

I agree 100% with you about we are what we eat.  We make sure to give the hghest qualtiy oil and gas to our cars, wuoldn't think of anything else and the same many times for our pets.  We need to think similary   You have peaked my interest in the book from cancer to wellness and i am going to seek out a copy. I just read a summary of the book and it does give the direction that my naturopath has provided as well as Jan who helped me tremendously gain control of my life.    I saw in the summary about mind/body.    My naturopath has me visiting  sharma as part of my journey to wellness.  I am determined to not leave any stones unturned.  I have found also yoga,  adding deaily stretching and mind/body exercises to start my day has helped me as well

remind me your stage and type of cancer.  Mine is stage 1A,  high grade, but not MMT.  After 2 second opinions at two recognized cancer hospitals they finally agreed it was only a grade 3, but not anything more.  

I did meet a woman locally at our farmers market who made her own all natural soap that beat her MS.  she was literally in a wheel chair, showed pictures and used diet to reverse what her diet was doing to her body.  I guess we can be toxic to ourselves.

 

i look forward to hearing what you find out.  keep in touch

hi Sharon,

i read the book today. It is quite good and some very common sense thinking. Initially I was a bit turned off looking at the number of supplements she recommends. But I can understand why she did it. to answer your question, it is my mum who has been diagnosed with cancer in her lungs after a hysterectomy 15 months ago. It is also grade 3 with a lot of spots all over her lungs. Docs have told us they can't fix it.

i am going to follow her advice in the book and try and implement a few things. Though the cleansing routine she recommends seems very harsh and I am not sure my mum came take it as she is quite weak. So I will start with implementing things I can and build up to full diet plan. Depends on how my mum copes as well as her immune system and digestion is extremely poor at the moment.

Also the number of supplements entitled is a lot. She did this without any other medication. But my mum is on medication so have to see some of these vitamins don't have adverse effect.

i like your approach Of not leaving any stone unturned. I am with you on this! You are doing everything right. Let's keep sharing our findings and good luck to you and my mum and all other cancer patients in fighting this!
